Is declawing cats inhumane? Pet lovers, vets join debate over NY's proposed ban | syracuse.com

    As New York lawmakers attempt to address another of society's long standing inequities and shortcomings, the debate continues over declawing domestic cats.
      Of course there answer is another law, sending claw doctors to the back alleys.
       Declawing cats is a harsh procedure when compared to cutting off human parts but sometimes the procedure is an alternative to euthanasia for cats with behavioral issues.
       I just wonder why it took so  long to address this in Albany ?

Lots of folks who do know think this is a barbaric practice. And all some some rich babe doesnt' get her furniture scratched. Why not just cut off their paws.

I hardly think removing claws is quite the same as cutting off part of your finger. Personally I wouldn't do it, because a cat should earn their keep or there is no reason to have a cat around, and I sure as heck would not have one of the stinking things in the house. Incidently, I have been around several cats right after declawing and they didn't seem to be all that bothered by the process.

Another tempest in a teacup by people who have too much time on their hands. They can't run their own lives, but think they should run everybody else's.

Cats don't care if their claws are cut off and don't know the difference either. They still try to sharpen them and they still swat at things as if they had them. These same idiots who complain about what the cat doesn't care about, are the ones who eat health turkey that was raised in a cage or chickens or cows or whatever. Adn they don't' give a sh@# about the Hispanic slave who harvested their food either. But they want to protect the cat who eats the heads off from mice and eats flies.
